Summary

Life-cycle costing (LCC) is a technique for estimating the total cost of ownership of an asset over its lifetime. Its purpose is to assist decision-makers in making more-informed decisions concerning management of assets. These decisions can occur at any stage throughout the management of an asset. The object of the audit was to report on whether Defence applies LCC appropriately in support of decisions throughout the acquisition and management of its capital assets, and to make recommendations for any improvement. Defence agreed to all but one of the audit recommendations. Defence added, however, that many of the recommendations are not new and do not present fresh approaches to assist in managing life-cycle costing. The report makes clear that the approaches recommended by the ANAO are based in part on actual and proven commercial or overseas experience. The recommendations are intended to prompt a more business-like approach to Defence operations by promoting greater awareness of life-cycle costs across the agency.
